Got our 3rd BFP yesterday grin

DS is 2.5, DD 10mo and not a good sleeper. We've always wanted a bigger family so decided not to use contraception after DD as I was BFing lots anyway (still at least 4 times a day)

As I say, we are excited and happy and a bit giddy, but there is quite a lot of scared too.

Can anyone with a close age gap reassure me that its possible
Can anyone with a bad sleeping velcro baby reassure me that she won't stab the new LO when I turn my back? Or even that she'll sleep more than 5hrs at some point?
We don't need to buy loads of kit as we must have everything now so don't need to worry about money do we?

Thank you

Congratulations. I think a close age gap is fantastic. All your DCs will be able to play together before long. You have 9 months to get your DD into a better sleeping pattern. I'm sure you can do it (be tough)

You've already got a pretty cloe gap between first 2 so you'll be fine smile - and DS will be what, 18 months? So a toddler, not a baby any more. Congratulations!

My DS was a terrible sleeping velcro baby and fine when DD was born, infact very loving so don't worry automatically about that.

Thank you all, I am swinging pretty randomly between this will be fun and this will be chaos!
